Sacred Heritage Places
Peek into the ancient spiritual places woven into the historic Welsh landscape along the path
We’ve teamed up with National Churches Trust to bring you nine unique walking itineraries.
There are three each on the Llyn Peninsula, Pembrokeshire and in Ceredigion. They combine invigorating coastal walks on the path which lead you to the doors of some very special spiritual places.
From abbeys to churches, we invite you to take your time and experience the incredible nature of these ancient places as living breathing buildings, still being used for their original purpose.
